Oh. My. God. This. Is. HUGE!! @BadPlane
@snoman Austin plans/hopes to add several routes including nonstop service to Hawaii, Dublin, Paris, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Beijing, Seoul, And Shanghai. The above are “priority” cities. Here’s my source. NOTE: scroll down to see the routes/priority.
This would be amazing. Austin hopes to have as many of these as possible (hopefully all 🤪) in the next 5 years.
For the airlines in these routes, it is undetermined. Delta is working on turning AUS into a mini hub, so they might operate the flights to Paris or maybe even Tokyo. That’s me and my dad’s guess. As for the other routes, I don’t know. Maybe just the country’s airline. AUS is building a lounge currently also. This would be amazing for Austin and this will be very exciting to watch as a local! I’ll keep an eye on it and reply to this thread with updates.
The current AUS heavy routes are:
AUS-LHR British Airways 744
AUS-LGW Norwegian Air Shuttle 789
AUS-FRA Lufthansa a333
Thank you all for reading!!
